Show Full Article While Donald Trump wants to “Make America Great Again,”   The Daily Show has launched its own initiative: “Make Trump Tweets Eight Again.”
The Trevor Noah-hosted show launched a new site Wednesday, one that takes the president’s tweets and rewrites them in the scribbled handwriting of a child. We made a browser extension that converts Trump’s Tweets into their rightful state: a child’s scribble. A few of the techniques, displayed in the example below, include the dot over a lowercase “I” being a full circle and using colorful print. The browser extension, which is available on Google Chrome or Firefox, takes Trump’s various tweets — whether it’s about going to court over the controversial travel ban or Saturday Night Live — and puts a child’s spin on them.

Octavia Spencer says #OscarsSoWhite didn’t affect 2017 nominations

And people are saying, you know, ‘Isn’t it amazing in a year how things have changed as a result of that campaign?’”
Spencer offered a simple way to make a difference at the box office: “If I look down a list of characters on a film, and it doesn’t have gay, African-American or Latin characters, I’m probably not going to spend my money on the ticket,” she said. “Real progress has been made,” said Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, at the Feb. Octavia Spencer is one of those actors, nominated for her role as a NASA mathematician in the film Hidden Figures. 6 Oscar Nominees Luncheon, according to Vanity Fair. These films were in production or preproduction for years before all of this,” she said. There are seven people of color nominated for acting Oscars this year, compared to zero in both 2015 and 2016. “I don’t like the way that they’re used as a response to that. “When you know how movies are made, the explosion of films with people of color is not a reaction to #OscarsSoWhite,” Spencer said. This article originally appeared on TIME.com. “The tide has changed, but we still have a ways to go, because they still aren’t inclined to greenlight a movie that’s starring a person of color, without a long list of white box-office people.”
Naomie Harris — who’s nominated for best supporting actress for Moonlight — echoed Spencer’s sentiment during an interview with New York Magazine. But in an interview with Deadline, Spencer was quick to point out that the diversity of this year’s movies has nothing to do with last year’s #OscarsSoWhite campaign because films generally take more than a year to make. “When we stop supporting things with our dollars that don’t represent all of us, then you’ll see an explosion of diversity.”

‘Big Little Lies’: EW review

Hopefully it can transcend to big little truths, too. Still, Vallée’s fluid storytelling — a lovely, dazed naturalism spliced with flashes of troubling memory — casts a spell. Big Little Lies is Desperate Housewives: Prestige Cable Edition, a soap-noir about postfeminist identity and post-community idealism — satire over slapstick, serious themes over fun-time escapism. The women of Big Little Lies present lives of   fulfilling motherhood, and they work overtime to make themselves believe it. Kidman and Woodley deliver moving portraits of still-life women, paralyzed by trauma and avoidance. Can the whodunits offer anything more interesting than just shocker payoffs? Adapted from Liane Moriarty’s 2014 novel by David E. Just when you worry the show is a pageant of ugly clichés about female rivalry, it gives you a poignant, nuanced scene to deepen the whole. Police interviews with judgy, jealous townspeople function as both unreliable narrator and catty Greek chorus. Kelley’s writing grabs you with whodunit? ET on HBO. Her character recalls two career triumphs: the spark of Legally Blonde‘s Elle Woods trapped inside a retrograde version of Election‘s Tracy Flick. They reside in sun-kissed Monterrey, California, an oasis of serenity and progressiveness, with majestic homes overlooking a churning ocean that speaks to a yearning and tumult they can’t bear to fathom. She flails for significance through her kids and grudges against a hard-charging working mom (a sparky Laura Dern) and her ex-husband’s new wife, a neo-hippie yoga instructor (Zoë Kravitz). Show Full Article When the deadly explosion comes, there’s no shortage of suspects. Each is a ticking time bomb, and their mounting stress affects everyone in their cloistered village. Shailene Woodley is Jane, a single parent devoted to a boy born of sexual violence; she seeks a new beginning, but she isn’t ready for it. Nicole Kidman is Celeste, the envy of everyone, a former attorney who gave up work to raise her twins, married to a suave family man (Alexander Skarsgård) with terrible demons. Kelley (Ally McBeal, Boston Legal) and directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (Wild), the seven-episode miniseries continues the gold rush of starry event TV (see: The Night Manager, The Night Of), though its heaviness may discourage obsessiveness.

Lena Dunham comments on Taylor Swift election backlash

That’s how I hope to live my life, which is not as a slave to public opinion but just as somebody who continues to make things… People who understand how to protect themselves but aren’t so beaten down that they can’t be creative – that to me is the greatest.”
Swift has worked extensively with Dunham’s partner, the singer-songwriter Jack Antonoff, on tracks like “Out of the Woods” and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” and   once brought Dunham out on stage during her   1989   tour.

The Girls star continued, saying she admired Swift’s poise as a public figure. But she’s sympathetic to those like her friend Taylor Swift, who don’t speak out about politics. “She’s been in the public eye since she was 15,” she said.

When I met her, she was newly 22, and she was a f—ing seasoned pro at this stuff. Watching the way that she understands the vicissitudes of the cycle, and she just keeps making her work, – that’s just really impressive to me. Asked in a new interview with Rolling Stone about the backlash Swift received online for “not speaking up” during last year’s election, Dunham said, “I just think everyone has to do it their way.”
She added, “When I was lesser known, I was like, ‘Who could not share their opinion?’ Then I found out that when you talk about politics, people straight up tweet you the floor plan of your house and say they’re coming to your house.

Demetri Martin tackles grief in ‘Dean’ trailer

‘This Is Us’ producer breaks down Jack and Rebecca’s fight, tension with Ben

Are we going to start to see more flaws in the Super Dad/Super Jack portrait moving forward? (And what about   Toby and Kate? We saw another side of Jack in the second episode, when he was drinking too much. I think that the question is not necessarily how much of a wedge her going on tour will drive between the two of them, as much as the issues that are presented in episode 15 — his jealousy and   his difficulty with her leaving, her need for independence and her need to be able to get back to her creative self. Let’s dive back into the action   with a man who has never played tennis with Salmon Rushdie,   Ken Olin,   the This Is Us executive producer   who directed “Jack Pearson’s Son.”
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY:   If we were a little worried after   Rebecca told Jack that she wanted to go on tour,   now it seems we have true cause for concern. And the thing that’s probably the most ominous is when she says to him, “I thought that I could have this without you getting in the way.”   And what she means by that is, “I thought that I could have this for myself without the issues that you have and your dependency on me and your fears about losing me getting in the way.” So, it’s certainly something that will have to be dealt with in the final episodes of the season, because before we even deal with her being away for that amount of time, she will   have to deal with how much that threatens him   —   and how much she resents some of the sacrifices that she’s made. What is Ben thinking? William’s health was breaking down. Beth’s mother broke her hip. There was cause for alarm nearly everywhere on Tuesday’s installment of This Is Us. I think it’s a little early to tell. Toby cautioned that after all of the collapsing and   surgeries and surgeries that were postponed and breakups and makeups and expulsions from weight-loss immersion camps, perhaps it was time to pump the breaks and try to get to know each other better — and for her to be able to talk about Jack’s death — before they got   married, possibly (but probably not) in a water park. Sacrifices made for love are now being thrown back in each other’s face. I don’t think he’s a bad guy at all, but I don’t know that he’s a particularly good guy or a responsible guy. But it certainly is a significant issue. Don’t get us started, because,   well…    there wasn’t much to get started on. He’s a very interesting character because at the end of the season people are going to have to draw their own conclusions about what motivates him, and what motivates him in terms of his relationship with Rebecca. Those are the issues that drive a wedge that never really were   resolved. This is a person that hasn’t been drinking for six, seven years, and he clearly makes a choice because of the things that are happening with Rebecca   that he needs to have a drink in order to soothe his   anxiety. But it’s like anything in terms of relationships; part of it has to do with who’s perceiving it and why are they perceiving it a certain way. Jack and Rebecca’s relationship took a turn — a hard one — for the worse. [As for] the drinking, that’s another thing that will be dealt with by the end of the season   — whether or not the drinking is in fact a symptom of a disease, that we’re dealing with real alcoholism. What is Rebecca thinking? Or we are   dealing with some fundamental weakness on Jack’s part, meaning some of the fears or insecurities that he has, that he uses alcohol to self-medicate? But that doesn’t necessarily mean that all those issues and all those demons don’t exist anymore. Mm-hmm. They are duetting on that Etta James song with lyrics like “If you ever change your mind   about leavin’/leavin’ me behind/Oh, oh, bring it to me Bring your sweet lovin’.” When Jack notices their intense eye contact,   Miguel assures him that they’re just playing it up for the crowd. Where is this a product of Jack’s insecurities and where   is he really perceiving something accurately? Even if Ben isn’t nefariously plotting something, it just seems that there’s more than a musical connection there. He is deeply in love with her, and she makes him reach for his best self. Seconds from going on stage — and emboldened by advice from, of all people, stepdad Miguel (Jon Huertas) — the former star of The Manny   bolted from the theater (if you thought Sloane was pissed before, imagine her now) and   finally showed up for his brother, another step in repairing a historically fraught relationship. We’re going to find out a little more about the way Ben operates in the last three episodes of the season. She was willing to make that sacrifice, but I think for a lot of women who are really creative, when they make those sacrifices for their marriages and children, it doesn’t mean that those desires go away. Randall himself seemed headed for a breakdown. I mean, the only thing I can tell you is that as it plays out   —   and as it will play out over the final episode of the season   —   there will be enough information for people to draw their own conclusions about that. In the character that Milo created, the thing   that we really tried to   depict is that flawlessness, that Super Dad, is also in some ways a veneer that covers a person who has some real insecurities, some real damage. And there’s certain limitations he has that run directly contrary to some of the things that she needs in life, and that once she begins to express those things   —   and once she begins to demand some of those things for herself   —   he’s not as capable of keeping those demons at bay. In this episode, an   unpleasant jealous, insecure side reared its ugly head. In Pearson   present day, the responsibilities and pressures and anxieties (including a terminally ill biological father that just fired his nurse!) were piling up on Randall (Sterling K. And then Rebecca represents, in his mind, a kind of salvation for him. NEXT PAGE: Toby and Kate’s decision to slow things down   will ‘take us in a whole different direction’

Show Full Article And how ominous is that final moment   with Jack downing   a drink, a problem that he told Rebecca he would fix   —   and did? Was his mentioning to Jack that he used to date Rebecca designed on any level to get under Jack’s skin, or was it just an awkward stumble into a minefield? And given that we’re talking relationships, albeit a different kind, Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby (Chris Sullivan) took theirs   in a strange, new direction: normalcy. Brown), causing the perfection-seeking family man and corporate star to be   reduced to a man unable to function, frozen in tears. How much of a wedge will the   tour with Ben drive between Jack and Rebecca in these last few episodes? Let’s talk about the conversation Ben and Jack had at the bar. And   we’re going to get enough information by the end of the season that people will have to draw their own conclusions about whatever their chemistry is. But   when Jack attended a Valentine’s Day gig for the band with Miguel (Jon Huertas), he saw the way they connected onstage   and validated his jealousy when Ben (Sam Trammell) let it slip after the show that he and Rebecca used to date. Kevin was stressed   that he would tank on the opening night of   his   play. They actually became   a force of reason   — that is, once Kate was kicked out of her weight-loss immersion camp.)
“Jack Pearson’s Son” opened with things seeming   stable between Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore), especially after that uncomfortable ending to last week’s episode, in which Rebecca told Jack   during their sweet romantic reconnection at their old apartment that she wanted to go on tour with Ben’s band. Collapsed on the floor of his office, he would be comforted by the sibling who teased and ignored   him in his youth: Kevin (Justin Hartley). You’ll just have to wait and see. That led to the cancellation of the traditional bacon cheeseburger date, a confrontation that   ended with Rebecca blurting out that   she “needed   to have something for myself without you getting in the way,” (that’s going to leave an emotional mark) and Jack retreating to the restaurant to not just consume   the cheeseburger   but also some forbidden drinks. We’ve seen that as a child he was the son of an alcoholic, and we’ve seen that every once in a while, we’d get glimpses of his anger. We’re going to see some things coming up. To the world, many people think, “Oh, this is a perfect Dad.
